Product intro

Bolt CMS is a lightweight CMS built with the Silex Microframework. It is well built and a great alternative for developers looking for a modern PHP system to replace WordPress, for example.

Grav is a fresh flat-file database which is easy to install. It uses a number of Symfony components and is very fast to get started with.

Main advantages
  • Clean architecture built with Silex, very easy to learn
  • Standard components for Forms and Database
  • Clean purpose, not trying to solve every problem
  • Fast to install and get started with
  • Extensible via Plugins, Skeletons and Themes
  • A fresh codebase, no PHP4 cruft here
Main disvantages
  • Developer availability compared to WP
  • Extensibility for multilingual, etc. depends on extensions
  • Limited community size

 

  • Limited use cases due to flat-file approach
  • Limited developer base
  • Needs more work to round the edges in real-world use
